Graduates may transfer to a 4-year school to work on a bachelor's degree in social work (B.S.W.) or go to work as paraprofessionals in service agencies for mental health, substance abuse, aging, corrections, etc. Deciding between majoring in social work or psychology? A B.S.W. allows you to work in the field as soon as you graduate whereas psychology practices generally require further studies beyond the 4-year degree.
